GIFT AID IT!
A meaningful amount of our income as a Parish (£13,000 in 2018) comes from the government as gift aid on our giving. If you are a UK tax payer please make sure your generosity is matched by the treasury by setting up a standing order or using the giving envelopes, and letting your treasurer know you are happy for gift aid to be reclaimed. It’s equivalent to a lot of coffee mornings for a lot less work!
